Cathedrals & carvings

such a grey & dreary day it was when mr o decided we needed a distraction
so off on long travels across the scottish border to the city of Carlisle
& its wondrous gothic cathedral tucked away there
innocent angels & roguish gargoyles

creeping vines topping sandstone pillars
such realistic alabaster figures
** fantastical carved wooden creatures

and above all,
painted stars on a ceiling you could live with forever


  1. Beautiful! I especially like that wooden carving with the wings and human head.x

  2. Beautiful photos. I love your subjects.

  3. Gothic cathedrals! My favorite! Love all the carvings and statuary.

  4. Just wow!!! Wonder if they'd notice if I moved in?


Thank you for stopping by my wee corner of blog land, I love to hear from you all and will visit as soon as I can.
